Don't Battle Insurance Companies Alone

A motor vehicle accident can result in serious injuries and property damage. This is particularly upsetting when you are not at fault in the accident.

New Hampshire Comparative Fault

New Hampshire is a comparative fault state. This means that in the event of a lawsuit, the courts will decide who is at fault in the accident and how much fault they share in the incident. A person can be found to be 100 percent at fault, not at fault or somewhere in between. Once it is determined how much fault is shared by the two parties, the compensation is awarded to the individual who is pressing charges. However, if the complainant is considered to be 50 percent at fault or more, no damages are awarded.

Statute Of Limitations On Personal Injury Claims In New Hampshire

Sometimes, a person may not realize the extent of an injury until several months after an accident. In New Hampshire, the statute of limitations on personal injury claims is three years. This allows drivers or passengers who have been injured emotionally or physically as the result of an auto accident to file a personal injury claim within three years.
